About Us

Thank you for clicking my page! Your time is valuable, so let’s get to the point!

  • I started documenting the world through photographs around the age of 10
  • I love connecting with people
  • My style is Documentary Lifestyle


  • Lifestyle photography is photojournalism redefined." "It’s candid, yet done so with some direction and styling—it has an approachable feel and a relaxed result." A good photographer will look for moments but also set the scene.


  • Rather than posed or highly styled shots, documentary photography captures candid or spontaneous pictures of people, décor and action—in the moment. "I choose angles and backgrounds that make everything look its best."  "And once I’ve done that, I try to capture something real from the couple." Look for an intimate space for group portraits. "You get more interactions with everyone and you’ll create better moments."
  • Documentary Lifestyle Wedding Photography
    Documentary Lifestyle Wedding Photography takes patience, awareness and a keen knowledge of human behavior. Every tender or funny moment is anticipated. These are not images of people eating or daydreaming. They're images that tell stories through emotions, moods and feelings. Few people value photography quite like a bride planning her wedding day. Pouring over bridal magazines and Pinterest boards, you've seen all the poses and all the trends. Suddenly, an image comes to mind: your aunts dated wedding, complete with teased hair, forced poses and peach taffeta bridesmaids dresses. "Will that be me?" you wonder...
    It doesn't have to be. Not unless you worry that genuine laughter is going out of style. Documentary Wedding Photography gives you the chance to experience your wedding as it really happened. You'll be able to look back on those photos and say, "That's who I really am! That's what I look like when I'm really enjoying life!"
  • Lighting is a key component of  photography. "Off-camera-flash photography is something a lot of photographers spend a great deal of time mastering" . "You need to be able to create your own light in some other way if the sun just isn’t cooperating on the wedding day." Anyone can take a great photo here and there, but what separates a true professional is their ability to take amazing photos, consistently, capturing every part of the wedding day."
